Initials and Numbers

I was cleaning my craft room when I came across an interesting piece of paper. I thought I'd share! Bonus: Now that it's here I can recycle it. WOO HOO for less clutter!

Directions: Each statement below contains the initials of words that will make it correct. Find the missing words. This puzzle is a mental challenge - not measuring intelligence, but creativity and flexibility. Do not expect to complete it all in one sitting. Some answers will come to you at unexpected moments. (I'll post the answer key in the comments.)

Example: 12 M in a Y (answer: 12 months in a year)

1. 26 L of the A
2. 7 W of the W
3. 1,001 AN
4. 12 S of the Z
5. 54 C in a D (with the J)
6. 9 P in the SS
7. 88 PK
8. 13 S on the AF
9. 32 DF at which WF
10. 18 H on a GC
11. 90 D in a RA
12. 200 D for PG in M
13. 8 S on a SS
14. 3 BM (SHTR)
15. 4 Q in a G
16. 24 H in a D
17. 1 W on a U
18. 5 D in a ZC
19. 57 HV
20. 11 P on a FT
21. 1,000 W that a P is W
22. 29 D in F in a LY
23. 64 S on a CB

I kind of wish I had tried to solve the puzzle before typing it all out and seeing the answers. (DOH!) I know I did it before, but I did realize that I had forgotten a lot of these. I challenge you to print these out and try to figure them out before looking at the answers.

Oh, and please tell me that I'm not the only one who's mind immediately resorted to potty humor upon reading #14!
